Alan Freeman - Wants List!
bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: email@example.com with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.
Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!
Items in red are new here
Cheap CDs or sampling rips

up to 1982 that I don't have on this page:
John Peel / Top Gear Sessions
Anyone got the John Peel announcements/intros from the various Can sessions, Faust sessions and Third Ear Band In Concert?
Other BBC shows
Anyone got listings and/or know of sessions from "The Sequence" on "Sounds of the 70's" show?
Old Grey Whistle Test
"in the studio" video...
"Jazz on Four: Crossing Borders" (Channel 4 TV) 1983 programmes on: Fred Frith, Ron Geesin, Brian Godding
Tonkraft Radio, Sweden...
In fact, if you have any live video, recordings or radio sessions (of fine quality) that may be of interest, let me know!
German/Krautrock releases we still need to hear...
CONTACT, LP Blackfield Tonstudio Bts 721
(1972) Pseudo Krups / Osmose / Laubentanz / Faktotum - this is pre
Contact Trio, but with a clarinet player instead of guitarist. Likely to be
too jazz for me. An mp3 track sample will do.
Store Evil - LIVE Aus Dem Leine-Domicil, LP Lava TCH 77350 (1977) jazz-rock of some sort (on Discogs). Sounds good based on the one track (streaming sample) on Fagostore site, a bit Ibliss, Aera, Kraan like. Review there says some of it is funky. Need to hear the whole album!
Recent discoveries - are these of interest?....
Attention - Greenville, Carolina / Green Kitchen, 7" Polydor 2041 179 - 1971 probably pop - on Discogs
Changes - IMAGES TO REMEMBER, LP - KS 9005 - Swiss 1990 - http://www.discogs.com/Changes-Images-To-Remember/release/5688165 - Don't know if I'm interested, this turns out to be the same band as issued THE GROWING NUMBER in 1994 which wasn't so great.

Salt - BE MY FISHERMAN, LP S 15748 - doubtful, God rock! http://www.discogs.com/Salt-Be-My-Fisherman/release/4449978
Saytenspiel - SAME, Austria 1984 - drummer: Franz Schmuck
according to seller, documented on Popsike...
Pure experimental folk, with very long psychedelic improvisations, without traditional template but with old (fiddle, harp, lute) and exotic (sitar and others) instruments. Extremely rare original (Serhant Label, without no.) from 1984 with double insert
Saytenspiel - KONZERTANZ, MC 1992 - or is it called: TANZHEFT ? German band - also definitely folk
Schmandelekker – TOURDION, LP Ornament – CH 7.336 - found at http://www.discogs.com/Schmandelekker-Tourdion/release/6070988 - turns out to be mellow folk in German based on " Mosella in Trauer" on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2BohS60qFY
Sonatinenblues - instrumental folk? representative?: www.youtube.com/watch?v=M28L01UrWLs
Steinzeit - GEBURTSTAG, LP (Absurde Geburten 8511101) 1982 http://www.discogs.com/Steinzeit-Geburtstag/release/5358908
according to seller, documented on Popsike...
Recorded at the Ougenweide-Studio in Hamburg. Musically totally avantgarde, somewhere between early FAUST, CAN in their "Tago Mago" phase, Lothar & The Hand People and some hints of 80s Berlin bands like Malaria or Einstürzende Neubauten.
Tracks: Steinzeit / Japan / Schützenkönige / Wie Du Dir so ich mir / Karibische Messer / Falkland / Liebe ist kälter als Eis / Der Araber / Die fromme Helene - Morgenstund hat Volt im Mund

If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (was written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
What do we already know? Check the A-Z list of over 4,700 prog & experimental artists in our UT Web Encyclopedia!
Note: Some items on this page we may have previously had but forgot about. A small front cover jpg may jog my memory!
